Nifty opened flattish and after a slight decline in the initial tick, buying was seen at declines which are giving strength to the index. It is moving in a positive to range-bound manner. Till the index holds above key level of 17450, it can once bounce towards 17777 zones. Market breadth continues to be in favor of the advancing counters indicating stock-specific action in the street.
India VIX is trading at higher levels and needs to cool down below 16-15 zones for stability in the market. On the Option front, Maximum Call OI is at 17600 then 17500 strike while Maximum Put OI is at 17400 then 17000 strike. Call writing is seen at 17600 then 17700 strike while Put writing is seen at 17400 then 17500 strike. Option data suggests yet another shift in trading range in between 17200 to 17700 zones.
Bank Nifty opened negative and has been in pressure relatively. It is rebounding after breaching its previous day’s low levels. Support has shifted to 37000 levels whereas an upside hurdle exists at 37777 zones.
On the sectoral front, IT, Realty, Pharma and Media stocks are trading in the positive territory whereas all the other sectors are trading in the negative territory out of which Auto, FMCG and Banking stocks are facing the most weakness. We are witnessing long formation in stocks like Motherson Sumi, Apollo Hospital, Kotak Bank, Infosys, TVS Motor, Dalmia Bharat, BEL, Tata Consumer, Ultracemco, Titan etc. while short build-up is visible in counters like LT, Asian Paint, SBI Card, Eicher Motors, Marico, PVR, Indigo, Balkrishna, Maruti, Adani Ports etc.
